So this is a bit of an odd usage scenario even for AfterEffects, but I wanted to see if it might be possible. Short version, I have a path that I made with the Pen tool, whose anchor points are parents to nulls, with a Round Corners effect applied.
Is there a way to get another object to animate along a path set up like this?
The only way I know of to get an object to animate along a path is to copy the path itself and paste it onto the Position property of the object I want to animate. That isn't working with this setup, and neither is trying to drag the parent pickwhip from the object's Position property to the Path property of the path layer.
Failing that, I'm out of ideas. Is what I'm describing even possible?
